Pick-up/Drop-off Procedures

  • Keeping students safe is our highest priority.  Riding the bus will be your student’s quickest way on and off the VFE campus.  We expect about 150 students will arrive by car each day-- a tremendous amount  in a small area. We encourage you to carpool with our families as much as possible.  If you live on a bus route, please take advantage of our wonderful transportation service and have your child ride the bus daily.


    If you drive your child to school, we need your help making the car morning drop-off/afternoon pick-up as safe as possible. Please help us ensure the safety of your students by using the designated loop.


    • Please clearly display your pick up tag with your student’s number for dismissal on your rear view mirror.  If you are planning to pick your child up on a regular basis and do not have a tag, please pick up a tag from the front office as soon as possible.  This number quickly allows our staff to tell which child is being picked up and helps maintain safety.
    • In the morning, 15 minutes prior to and until the start of the school day, there will be staff members meeting and directing students.  Please do not drop students off until staff supervision has arrived (8:10AM on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and 9:45AM on Wednesdays).  Student must be dropped off at the curb in front of the school or you may park and walk your child to the front entrance.
    • If you arrive after the start of school, please walk your child to the office to check-in.
    • Pickup will be at the same front of building location.  Please drive through the pickup route (remain in a single file line) and your child will be escorted to your car after dismissal.  Make sure you have your car tag displayed. Parents may also park and meet their child in the front of the school.
